New Course – Practical and Emotional Help Skills Training – February to May 2021

This new course takes learners through a process of exploring and developing the skills and knowledge needed to support women who may be facing challenges in their lives. The course is tailored to enable participants to join our mentoring team on completion, which can be a paid or voluntary role within our organisation.

The course provides participants with a Level 2 qualification in IAG (Information Advice and Guidance) which can provide a useful stepping stone towards a career in working with people. We run Zoom sessions once a fortnight, and pair up participants to spend time between taught sessions offering one-to-one support to each other so they can practice their skills throughout the programme.

Learners can find all the resources they need to complete the course work for each session here, and new resources will be added as the course progresses.
